Unable to find service manual for techs to use to fix amplifier

G'day
I bought an XMS503 AV Receiver about 18 months ago, new. Had some problems from the start with the sound cutting out and static would take over. This happened only a couple of times and because of one reason or another, I wasn't able to get the unit back to Strathfield in Hyde Park, Townsville, where I bought it. I haven't used it in about a year and I recently hooked it up and the problem is still there, only it is happening nearly every couple of minutes.
If you press the coaxial button on the remote, or switch it to another unit eg. vcr, then back again and the sound comes back. But after a couple of minutes the sound dissapears and the static comes back!
I put it into a repair shop and they charged me $55 to be able to not fix it. The guy said that he could not find the fault, said the manual volume button was also stuffed and that he needed the service manual or specs for the unit
Strathfield have shut down in Townsville and I have called Head Office and all they say is that their policy is to replace the unit if it is under warranty and if it is not.....too bad! They say there is no-one they know who can obtain the specs the techs need and simply don't want to know about my problem! This unit cost me around $500 and I have hardly used it, and I am not working, so $$$$ are few and far from each other. I was hoping to download the nescessary files but can find no reference for them anywhere. So here I am, writing to you in the hope you are able to give me some advice which will help.
Thanks for your time in reading this
Cheers

SOURCE: Receiver shuts down after loud bang

You said Unit is enclosed!! Does that mean it is inside something? Receivers & Amps need to have a clearance above them so air can circulate, otherwise you'll have an overheating problem. You also might have some of your wires crossed which will cause the Amp to shut down. Look at all your connections and make sure they're correct, including speaker wires.

No fix to this problem. When my T763 had the same symptoms I left it with the dealer who sent it on to service. It ended up being scrapped. So I'm afraid this is the end of your receiver unless your techies are better than the ones who worked on mine.

How can i upgrade my av 302 to becomes best as konzert av-502


Hi,
upgrade your 302 to 502 need to replaced the toroid transformer, set of output amplifier, set of electrolytic capacitor.
Purchasing of these parts one-by-one is much expensive rather that you buy a brad new Konzert AV-502. Also upgrading the unit is quite tech and need a lot of experienced in electronics.
Hope that it may help you.
Have a nice day.

LG Wash WM2487H*MA- how to turn the tub clean feature on?


I have had this problem since I bought my washer. Some days the tub clean cycle will work....most days it won't. They have replaced the main board twice and it's still broken. I've had nothing but bad luck with LG appliances. Also bought a lemon fridge that took 4 repairman visits to fix. I will not buy another LG anything!!

Hi, we bought computer 18 month ago, it stopped working and we were told that there was problem with motherboard. Is that ok with such a new computer with very low usage?


Well nothing can really be said, but yes its possible. The Motherboard could be poorly made, even with limited usage or just 1 usage it could break.

You have 2 choices.

Find a tech who can give you an estimate to fix it; or buy the exact model motherboard and install it yourself.

Buy a new computer.

Xplod XM-DS1600P5 red light


For some reason it has gone into protection mode to limit further damage to the amplifier. Remove the subwoofer wires and power on to eliminate shorted voicecoil. After checking all wires for continuity to ground, a service tech will be required.

Canon 20D err 99 and shutter going off continuously


its not the battery

its the exposure of the shutter speed of the camera

it might need to be set manually. set it to 2.8 or 4.5 speed

i had the same problem when i bought my sigma 20mm-80mm lens.

the lens wasnt talking to the camera properly, it didnt know what it was aying about exposure speed rate.

put the camera in AV mode and set the speed rate.

the lens might be compatible with your camera even though it is a canon, or it could be defective

return and replace

Av amplifier


The display problem is because the solderings on the back of the display are broken. To fix it you have to open the amp and redo the solderings (there are about 50 or 60 of them). There is a Youtube video that shows how to do it. I have fixed this on my DSP-A1.
I also have the problem with the motorized volume control. I have tried cleaning it, and it works for a few days, then it's stuck again. I guess I will have to replace it to have it fixed permanently. The part number is VZ621400, a new one costs about 40$.
